2019 Ubisoft Toronto NEXT Awards: Congratulations Adam Homonylo and Sergi Iranzo – Finalists for Concept Art

Thursday, May 9/19 was a great evening at Ubisoft Toronto, and a great evening for Max the Mutt’s 2 finalists.

In a year when none of Max the Mutt’s year 4 Concept Art program students entered, Sergi Iranzo, who just completed his second year, came in third, and 2018 Concept Art graduate Adam Homonylo came in second for the Ubisoft NEXT Awards competition Concept Art category.

One of the best things about social occasions like this is networking and, for students, getting encouragement and feedback from the pros. Sergi really appreciated getting a chance to speak with Patrick Ingoldsby.
